Dodgers News: Alex Anthopoulous Added to Front Office

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

The Toronto Blue Jays finished this season with the highest run differential in baseball. Not just that, they had the best run differential in baseball by 99 runs. By several measurements, Toronto was the best team in the league, but, as tends to happen in MLB, the regular season’s best team fell short in the postseason.

Since then, their GM, Alex Anthopolous, resigned from his position — a move that shocked many. Now, it’s being reported he’s found his landing place in Los Angeles, with the Dodgers.

The thinking: like any other player, Anthoplous was gambling on himself, hoping to find a better position elsewhere given what he built in Toronto. It also didn’t help when a CEO was hired over his head, leading to a perceived power struggle from that point forward.

Anthopolous was also named 2015’s MLB Executive of the year, so there’s that, too.

Some concern might arise of too many cooks being in the Dodgers’ kitchen, but really, getting as many incredibly talented thinkers with like-minded ideologies is rarely a bad idea.

The Dodgers have yet to announce the move, but it does seem like this one, along with the Kenta Maeda deal, will be done sooner rather than later.
